Fruit, Flowers and a Cup of Tea

I thought that I might to name this post,  'Peel me a grape darling', or 'I want to be alone',  this coy image  came from one of the free image sheets I collected on the Gecko Galtz blog hop a while ago.
I have made this tag for the current  theme  Fruit and Flowers at the  Tag-Along  challenge.
The base is random stamped and generally shaded with distress inks.
The grapes are a Creative expressions stamped image which was water coloured,I have no idea who to attribute the flower stamp to.

Afternoon Tea

Also sharing a journal page with you that I  have just declared ' finished' . Its been in the making for a few days now. Lots of random stamping and blotting inks for the base layers. Some scraps of muslin etc, because I don't like to waste anything.  The main image is a Crafty Individuals stamp, which I can relate to very well.
Three o'clock is definitely time for a cuppa in our house.
Over at  The Craft-Room challenge  the current theme is Afternoon Tea/Photo inspiration.
I hope this page meets the theme.

Thank you for stopping by to take a look, I always appreciate your comments.
